pretty unremarkable, although it did seem like most of the overvotes had Clinton + others, not Trump + others. But I was not able to characterize as they appeared only sporadically and went in the machine fast. I clicker counted twice, once with Liz, once by myself. by myself, I counted Clinton and undervotes. For town of Dover, 1963 total per machine, 517 for Clinton both per machine and my count. 28 undervotes per machine, 22 per mine, but I may well have missed a few as they were fed in as a batch. My tabulator was very efficient.
Sending recount totals for:North Bay City of Racine Ward 32 City of Racine Ward 22 City of Racine Ward 21 City of Racine Ward 25
The tally sheets my husband Tom and I used are copies of the Dems' google docs. We did not have copies of the Stein forms. We would like to note that much of the information asked for on the Stein forms was actually difficult to get from the County Clerk. Eagle OptiScan (without modem, I think) and Edge DRE touch screens were used in Racine County Note: there seemed to be many issues with election judge initials on Absentee ballots Note: early voters were counted as Absentee ballots in the poll books I am sending photos of:Village of Union Grove City of Racine Wards 18, 14, 12 Village of Mt Pleasant Wards 10-12 City of Racine Wards 16, 15
I am sending photos of recount rally's for:Town of Yorkville Town of Waterford Town of Dover**the Town of Dover may be missing ballots as compared to the poll books.
I am sending photos of tally sheets for:Town of Norway*Village of WaterfordVillage of Windpoint Note: The totals for Town of Norway seem to be inconsistent with officially reported totals. Even the recount numbers do not coincide with the poll book totals - there appears to be a 100 vote variance in ballots scanned for recount and the poll books.

The City of Burlington Wards 1-4 and 5-8 ballots were scanned today. I am providing photos of the totals and one of the scanner tapes. One of the Stein Observers was told by (Clerk or Tabulator or Board of Canvass member)? that the polbooks for these two sets of voters were reconciled overnight(?). It is my opinion that the City of Burlington polling process be thoroughly reviewed, and the poll workers be properly re-trained. Counts that are 90 -100 votes off from the poll books and voter information materials that are separated from each other are confusing and lead to disenfranchised voters and votes. Also, City of Racine Ward 30 ballot scanning was interrupted by the failure of the scanning machine. The cartridge was transferred to another scanner, counters verified, and the scanning continued.

The Recount started smoothly this morning. The Clerk-designee, name is Joan, I believe got 8 Wards out and had many Tabulators working. She also got out some Ward ballots that had been counted then sealed back into their original bags the previous night for scanning today. I had heard that some scanners had been overheating in the previous days and Tabulators were hoping that did not happen today.Then something went awry with the ballot counts in the City of Burlington Wards 1 through 4 and 5 through 8.These were two separate sets (polling places?) of ballots. The total number of ballots counted at the tables exceeded the previously Certified Vote totals by about 90. That is, approximately ninety or more ballots were recounted than the poll books for both sets of Wards had entries. Eventually some Supplemental poll books were brought into the room, reviewed by Tabulators, and the numbers of voters listed in them were added to the original totals which were posted in the room for comparison to recount totals. I went for a break at 2:30 and when I returned at 4, the City of Burlington Wards 1-4 and 5-8 ballot counts had supposedly been reconciled with the poll books and Supplemental poll books. The ballots were re-sealed in their original bags and put away for scanning on Tuesday the 6th. Continue reading
